I started by adding olive oil to the Instant Pot and turning on the sauté function.  When it was hot I added the two goose breasts.

While the goose breasts were being seared on both sides I cut up the onion into chunks. I used pre-sliced mushrooms but if you use whole ones slice them up now as well. 

When the goose breasts are browned on both sides remove them from the pot and set them aside.

Now I threw the chopped up onion and the sliced mushrooms into the pot.

Be sure to stir while cooking.

I cooked until the onions were soft.

Then I poured in the beef broth and used it to deglaze the Pot.  I made sure to scrape all the brown bits off the bottom of the Pot to avoid the burn message later.

Next I added in some almond milk, corn starch, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, paprika, salt and pepper.

I stirred all the ingredients together until they were well blended.

Now it was time to return the goose breasts to the Pot.  I put the trivet in first and then lowered them on top of it.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 18 minutes.

When the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to natural release for 8 minutes. Then I turned the steam release handle to the venting position to finish with a quick release.

After removing the lid I lifted out the goose breasts.  

If you find the sauce needs thickening use some corn starch and water.  Make a slurry and turn the saute function back on to thicken the sauce.

I sliced the goose breasts very thinly to avoid chomping down on a pellet!  Serve covered in sauce and with your favourite sides.

      Hi There,
      They turned out great. They were small breasts. Maybe if I do larger ones I will try more time. Combined they were about 2.5 lbs.
      Thanks,
      Kathleen

    I have to agree with the other comment. I tried this recipe once using 18 minute cook + 8 minute npr and it came out very tough. The gravy was delicious though so I tried it again with 40 min cook + 8 min npr and it came out perfect – so tender! I had 2 very small breasts, only about 1 pound total. The second time I made it I also used 1T less red wine vinegar (I had found the vinegar taste a bit too strong) and instead subbed in 1T red cooking wine. Really great with these modifications. Thank you for the recipe!
